The 1:58.1 freshman filly harness racing trotting record set by Rose Run Keepsake andin 2008 was equaled on Tuesday (July 1) in Northfield Park's sixth race.
First time starter, Youre're Majestic, appeared to be an unlikely candidate to equal a track record. The program showed her only line as a qualifier, trotting in 2:07.2. But when the horses crossed the finish, she was in front and no other two year-old filly has ever trotted the Flying Turns faster.
Gloria Gillis of Mansfield, LA owns You're Majestic. Trainer, Ladarrius Whitaker called upon Ronnie Wrenn Jr. for the winning drive.
You're Majestic (-You're Adorable- ) started from post four. She sat in a stalking position and let her competition carve ambitious fractions of :28.4, :58.4 and 1:28.2. Wrenn tipped her inside at the top of the stretch and You're Majestic responded like an experienced horse and bested her competition by Â¼-length in 1:58.1.
You're Majestic was the only freshman in the race and returned $27.40 to win. The win was one of six victories on the night for Ronnie Wrenn Jr.
